Hollywood's girl next door, Kristen Bell, goes vegan

Hollywood’s most humble girl next door, Kristen Bell, is almost as famous for her love of sloths as she is for her star turns in cult favorites such as Veronica Mars or Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Bell, a vegetarian since she was 11 years old, recently made the switch to a full- fledged vegan diet. Once again the groundbreaking documentary Forks over Knives deserves full credit. She cites the film, which examines the claim that a plant-based diet has the ability to control or even reverse degenerative diseases, as her and boyfriend Dax Shepard’s inspiration to make the switch.

 "It's more about the health benefits than the ethics," she recently explained to Women’s Health Magazine. "But it's compounded by the fact that I love animals and feel better not eating them."

 Kristen’s honesty and compassion are evident in everything she does. She radiates beauty from the inside out, making her performances so compelling it’s next to impossible to take your eyes off her. Tune in to Showtime’s House of Lies and see for yourself.
